Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Gift Hill - Plumeria

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath Villa With Panoramic Ocean Views and Differentiated Amenities

Plumeria is located atop Gifft Hill, and features panoramic ocean views of up to twenty islands and cays, as well as spectacular sunsets, among the finest on St. John. Its layout provides the ultimate in Caribbean indoor/outdoor living, with large French doors in every room opening onto the interior courtyard, sundeck, and pool. Outdoor living spaces include the enclosed courtyard, a very comfortable outdoor living room facing the view, a central pool, interior gardens, covered walkways, the main sundeck, the new lower deck with its large built-in spa, the shaded dining gazebo, and a granite outdoor kitchen. Plumeria's hilltop location ensures complete privacy and gentle tropical breezes, as well as a single-level floor plan, with a flat driveway that has room for several cars.

Plumeria's expansive decks offer complete privacy while sunning by the pool, or enjoying a romantic evening in the outdoor living room. Have cocktails and enjoy the stunning sunsets over the Caribbean. As night falls, watch as cruise ships leave for their next port of call, and dine in the outdoor dining gazebo, with the lights of St. Thomas twinkling in the distance. Guests have often commented that dining in the gazebo at Plumeria is the 'table with the best view on St. John'. During the full moon the reflection over the waters of Pillsbury Sound is unmatched. The night sky is full of stars for star gazing, and we provide a high-end telescope and binoculars for guests to use.

The pool is solar heated, ensuring comfortable swimming all year round, and at night, LED pool lights slowly change colors, illuminating the courtyard. The gardens surrounding Plumeria were created for your enjoyment. Orchids abound in the trees, and over 200 different plants and flowers, many with botanical plant labels, attract hummingbirds and bananaquits. Flowering plumeria trees, also called frangipani, add a delightful fragrance to the tropical breezes. In summer, guests can enjoy delicious mangoes, picked fresh from the tree.

You can be dining at one of the many fine restaurants in Cruz Bay less than 10 minutes after leaving your private villa. Plumeria has been furnished for your ultimate comfort, with large upholstered custom furnishings in the great room, and similarly immersive furnishings in the outdoor living room. Indoor fine dining for six is easily accessible from the gourmet kitchen. The kitchen is fully stocked for 'cooking in', with all the gear needed to prepare gourmet meals, including a full set of thirty Penseys' spices. In addition to its large indoor kitchen, Plumeria features a granite outdoor kitchen adjacent to the dining gazebo. The outdoor kitchen features a large built-in gas grill with rotisserie, a teppanyaki cooktop, a mini-fridge, hot and cold water sink, and all of the necessary utensils and tableware. Across the pool from the great room are the air conditioned bedrooms, with a king bed in the master bedroom and a queen bed in the guest bedroom. Both lower bedrooms include en-suite baths. The spacious loft above the great room has both a queen bed and two twin beds, accessed by a spiral stairway, and is also air conditioned. A smaller day bed in the great room brings the total sleeping accommodations up to nine.

Plumeria shares ownership with the adjacent villa on Gifft Hill, Coconuts (www.vrbo.com/472849), and the two villas can be rented together, accommodating larger groups with up to sixteen guests. Lush tropical landscaping provides complete privacy between the two villas, which each have their own half acre lot. For joint villa rentals, a gate in the fence between their lots is unlocked, allowing guests to walk freely between the grounds.

St John's gorgeous, undeveloped North Shore beaches, among the finest in the Caribbean, are only 15 minutes away. You can choose a relaxing day at the beach with our beach chairs, coolers, towels, and floats, or browse thru the many interesting shops to be found in nearby Cruz Bay.

You will be so completely relaxed and refreshed by your stay at Plumeria .... you won't want to leave.

About Kevin and Danielle McCarthy

In January of 2013, they had a wonderful opportunity to buy Plumeria, the villa adjacent to Coconuts. They immediately set about adding a number of the differentiated amenities that have proved so popular at Coconuts, and are singularly focused on making their guest's experience the best it can possibly be. Feel free to contact them with any questions that you might have, and they would be happy to email you their 'Welcome' document, which provides lots of helpful information about Plumeria.

Much, much better than described!

  • 5 out of 5
The pictures and descriptions of Plumeria do not do it justice. I was at this villa from 07/04 thru 07/09 and really didn't want to leave. In the past several years, it has become my habit to rent apartments, houses, etc. when I travel instead of staying in hotels or on resorts. This villa was the most well-appointed and well-stocked of any of the places I have previously rented. Kevin and Danielle have thought of everything that would make a stay here memorable and comfortable. The decor is lovely and airy and made it oh so easy nap! Having coffee every morning on the deck while taking in the beautiful views had me (a notoriously late sleeper) up by 7 a.m. I absolutely, whole-heartely recommend this villa to anyone looking for an island experience. I'm ready to go back!

Amazing!

  • 5 out of 5
I recently spent time at Plumeria with friends. The description of the property was accurate plus more. We did not even have to leave the Villa except for groceries and some shopping. Everything we needed was already there. We were very comfortable and the decor was exceptional! Beds were very comfortable and the kitchen well-equipped. We could be anywhere within 5 to 10 minutes which was another plus. We dined in pretty much except for lunch at Ocean Grill and dinner one night at Zo Zo's in Caneel Bay. Both were excellent! For a great day on the Caribbean try Catania Yatching with Captain Ocean Peterson at the helm. We had a simply wonderful day of sailing! All in all we had a great stay at Plumeria and btw, it is totally private and quiet!

Wonderful Get-Away

  • 5 out of 5
I have spent the past 7 days with two friends at Plumeria. It was everything it was promised to be and it was hard to leave the serenity the location provided. Waking each morning and sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee to enjoy the scenery was heavenly. Kevin and Danielle were very attentive to our needs and concerned that everything be perfect. Arriving during Carnival was not the best decision we ever made, but Paul, our greeter, was very helpful when we got stuck in the parade traffic. I could not have asked for a more perfect vacation, and my travel companions would say, "Ditto".

Outstanding Villa

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I recently celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at Plumeria. We could not have been more pleased with every aspect of our stay. From the booking through departure, working with Danielle and Kevin was a pleasure.The villa itself is breathtaking. The accomodations are all top notch from the bedding to the extremely comfortable outside living spaces (great outdoor speakers in the covered porch area) to the large pool and hottub to the remarkable views overlooking Cruz Bay to St. Thomas. It is all perfect!! The villa's location is five minutes away from Cruz Bay and no more than 20 minutes from all of the North Shore beaches (Francis Bay was our favorite). The villa is private yet expansive. Each of the three bedrooms has its own bathroom and all of the living areas are large and comfortable. You will want for nothing when you stay at Plumeria. We looked at dozens of other villas on St. John and, for this price range, you cannot go wrong booking Plumeria. Thank you Kevin and Danielle for a truly amazing vacation.

Terrific!!

  • 5 out of 5
We want to thank Kevin and Danielle for allowing us the chance to stay at this wonderful villa with the best views. From original inquiry to check out they answered every one of our questions. The updates are excellent with the addition of the exterior kitchen and spa. The villa is well stocked, clean and very liveable. We originally planned on having seven guests but do to weather issues four could not join us. There is always next year and we are already in the planning stages.

Magnificant Stay At Plumeria

  • 5 out of 5
The Plumeria home on St. John's Gift Hill provided awesome views. The home is beautiful, inside and out! The large deck, wonderful furniture, pool & hot tub allowed our group to relax while soaking in the views of the island and St. Thomas, along with passing Cruise ships and sail boats. The owners of this property could not be any more friendlier and accommodating! Our men enjoyed grilling and cooking on the fabulous new outdoor grill/kitchen, which is stocked with everything you can imagine, or need for a perfect meal.
This being our 7th visit to the Island, and always staying on Gift Hill, the Plumeria and Coconut homes are by far the best! We are all looking forward to planning our next trip to the best Island in the Caribbean. From the Indiana & Texas Crew

About St. John:

Travelers have once again voted St. John their #1 Caribbean destination in 2013, and for good reason. Thanks to the foresight of the philanthropist and naturalist Laurence Rockefeller, two-thirds of St. John has been and will in perpetuity be preserved in its original state, as part of the U. S. Virgin Islands National Park. Its 35 picture-perfect white sand beaches are each unique, with many of these lying within the boundaries of the National Park. As a result, when you turn away from the Caribbean Sea and look inland, you witness unspoiled virgin green hillsides, looking much as they did back in 1493, when Christopher Columbus discovered and named these islands. St. John's hilly terrain, and the literally hundreds of islands and cays that surround it, provide unmatched vistas and photographic opportunities from all around the island. The V. I. National Park maintains dozens of excellent hiking trails, and well preserved ruins from the era of the sugar mills allow you to step back in time to that earlier period. Despite large tracts of undeveloped natural beauty, St. John also offers extensive fine dining options, and the seaside village of Cruz Bay has many interesting shops to peruse.

If this will be your first visit to St. John, you are in for a treat!
